Snapask App

Hey guys!

Here's something an app that I would like to share with y'all - Snapask!

Snapask is a mobile tutoring app that launched in Singapore last year. How I wished this was available when I was mugging during my secondary school days! >< Basically, the app allows you to snap a photo of your question, and a tutor will come and help you! In Singapore alone, they have over 850 tutors from local universities such as NTU, SMU, and NUS.

Even though my exams are over, I decided to try out the app anyway. And along the way I thought of 5 ways the app can save a student’s life!

1. When you’re mugging through the night and you get stuck

You know that feeling - when you’re in your zone of mugging and going through the TYS (Ten Year Series) questions like Flash.. and SUDDENLY, you encounter a super hard question that you can’t solve no matter how hard you try. However, it’s 2am.. and no one's available to pick up your call. :( Certainly not the ghostbusters (haha).

Luckily, the tutors on Snapask are available 24/7! Look:

The tutor was kind enough to work out the solution step by step for me :D

2. When you’re too shy to ask questions in class

I don’t know if any of you feel this way but I do all the time! Everytime the teacher asks “does anyone have any questions?” I would scream ME! in my heart but keep quiet because I think the rest of the class already understands… especially when my class had so many smart people who ask cheem questions way beyond my league. I feared getting judged by these people because I thought it would sound like a "stupid" question to them.. :p

However, on Snapask, your class will not be there to judge you for asking a “stupid” question. No one can tell who you are by your username too. Plus, the waiting time for a tutor to pick up your question might be even less than a minute so NOBODY KNOWS! It's perfect for clearing all your doubts.

3. When you don’t have time or have no need for physical private tuition

With CCA and other commitments, sometimes it’s hard to schedule a fixed timing every week. There are times when my friends have to cancel tuition due to the hectic timetable at school.

Perhaps your grades aren’t bad enough to warrant the extra money spent on tuition, or maybe your family can’t afford the expensive rates.

Whatever the case, Snapask offers homework help only on demand. So when you need it, you use it - giving you complete freedom of your schedule!

4. When your attention span drops during the holidays

It’s so ironic that teachers give students a mountain of homework - so much that we can’t fully enjoy the holidays. June is like a mug-athon seriously. Without the presence of teachers and classmates around, it’s easy to lose focus and momentum. My favourite thing to do during the holidays was to go out with friends, and catch up on my beauty sleep/korean dramas.

But there are spurts when I feel super motivated, and I think that’s when Snapask is most effective! Whether at 2am or 10 in the morning, with each question asked the homework mountain slowly decreases.

There are SO many reasons I think Snapask is useful for students. And the good thing is they cater to all sorts of subjects and curriculum too - PSLE, O Levels, A Levels, IB.

When you first sign-up, you get 3 free sessions. After that, you can either purchase 15 more sessions at $30. Even better, Snapask now has a Premium Package. At $80 a month, you can ask UNLIMITED questions. Super worth it - give it a try by starting a free 7-day trial!

Snapask is also organising an exclusive Indoor Picnic on Saturday, 25 June 2016.

The Snapask team told me there will be a Descendants of the Sun Makeover session, with free photobooth, food, and free flow coffee! Click here to RSVP.

Goodluck! :)
